Doing business in Saudi Arabia

19 July 2018

We are pleased to announce the release of the latest “Doing business guide – in Saudi Arabia.” from BDO Dr. Mohammed Al-Amri and Co.

The Saudi Arabian economy is the largest in the Gulf region, and the country is the only nation in the region that is a member of the G-20 group of major economies.

The “Doing business guide – in Saudi Arabia" highlights key areas of consideration both for those businesses who are looking to invest in the kingdom, as well as those who are already present, but are looking to undertake a review of their zakat & tax exposures.

This guide is intended to describe the business environment in Saudi Arabia and to cover the most common forms of business entity and the taxation aspects of running or working for such a business.

In this light, and in broad terms, the guide covers:

The business environment in Saudi Arabia

Investment and finance in Saudi Arabia

The zakat and tax system of Saudi Arabia

Zakat and taxes on businesses and individuals in Saudi Arabia

Social security contributions in the kingdom

Please contact a member of our  Zakat & Tax Team or your local BDO advisor with questions about doing business in Saudi Arabia for further guidance and clarifications.
